‘Into The Woods’ opens tonight, performances through Sunday

It’s show time, Pagosa! 

“Into The Woods,” by Stephen Sondheim, opens tonight, Thursday, Nov. 20, and plays through Sunday, Nov. 23 — one weekend only — at the Pagosa springs High School auditorium.

Performances Nov. 20, 21 and 22 are at 7 p.m. A matinee on Sunday, Nov 23, is at 2 p.m.

You will be amazed by a seasoned cast, outstanding set and costume design, and a talented orchestra, led by conductor Lisa Hartley. 

The vocals in the cast will lift you higher — high above the mountains that surround the high school theatre performance venue. 

Led by Kathy Isberg, who plays The Witch, and surrounded by other characters played by Bill Nobles, Robert Neel, Josie Lafferty, Ami Harbison and Jessica Krebs, “Woods” transforms the stage and welcomes the audience into another place and time. 

The play is very much about wanting to live where the “wild things” are, while still holding fast to “normal” life, with its routines and relationships. 

Eventually, it becomes more about the search for community ties than individual adventure and satisfaction. 

The capstone song. “No One Is Alone.” celebrates the bonding of survivors of the woods and the creation of new family groups.  Without such bonds, how can one survive a world where angry giants, and big bad wolves run wild? 

“Into the Woods” is a dream realized by the Music Boosters family.   Next year begins our 20th anniversary season.

Start the celebration early with “Into The Woods.”  Tickets are available online at www.brownpapertickets, at the Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center, or at the door prior to a performance.
